HomeAid Atlanta and The Drake House celebrate the completion of The Drake Village with volunteer Builder Captain Dan O’Dwyer of O’Dwyer Properties. The Drake Village is a renovation of two eight-unit apartment buildings located on the property adjacent to The Drake House's existing crisis housing complex. The new facility more than doubles The Drake House's capacity to serve homeless women and their children, going from 44 beds to 100 beds.

HomeAid Atlanta, founded in 2001, is a nonprofit organization that builds new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach. HomeAid works in partnership with the building industry, as well as community organizations, to assist people experiencing homelessness. To date, HomeAid Atlanta has completed over 100 housing, remodel and care day projects at locations serving victims of domestic violence, teen mothers, veterans and more. HomeAid is the designated charity of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association. Learn more at www.homeaidatlanta.org.

The Drake Village provides short-term crisis housing, education and empowerment programs for homeless single mothers and their children in North Metro Atlanta, designed to provide stability for the children and assist the family in working toward self-sufficiency.

Participants will be available for Q&A. Members of the media are asked to RSVP to Mandy Crater at [email protected].
